Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prevent cavities?

Is Maxillofacial Surgery medical or dental?
Maxillofacial surgery is a unique specialty that merges medical and dental sciences. This branch of medicine encompasses procedures that treat trauma, defects, and diseases affecting the functional and aesthetic aspects of the head and neck, except for the brain.
What are common dental and oro-facial surgeries?
● Wisdom tooth Extraction.
● Facial Injury and Trauma Surgery
● Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer Treatment

● TMJ Disorder and Facial Pain Treatment
What is plaque?
Plaque is a sticky film over the tooth, made from leftover food particles and saliva that mix in your mouth. If you don't brush properly after meals, it begins to develop and build up on your teeth. This can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.
When do I see a dentist?
You may be unaware that a cavity has formed. Therefore, dental check-ups are important, even when you do not feel pain. However, if you experience a toothache or mouth pain, see your dentist as soon as possible.
